Pardon this if it sounds a bit harsh, but it's something that needs to be said.

Asian people, people of Asian descent, and pretty much all non-Chinese people don't appreciate being generalized as "Chinese." People of the following nationalities (this is merely an example, there are far more) are not specifically Chinese.


In addition, these people are not "Oriental" either. The only Oriental things are rugs and trains. It's just not Politically Correct. Calling people of Asian descent Oriental is basically equivilent to referring to Native Americans as Injuns.
